I’ll admit it! I have always LOVED Kentucky Fried Chicken. I love the extra crispy chicken, the mashed potatoes and gravy and the COLESLAW! I have tried to make the chicken taste like theirs, no luck, but at least I can say I got the coleslaw right!
A month ago, my husband and boys, and all of the boys in his family went fishing in Chamberlain, South Dakota. They caught some amazing walleye! Walleye is one of my favorite fish to eat. It’s perfectly white and flaky!
Here are my fishermen with their catch of the day!
When they returned home from their trip, we had to have a fish fry!
The hubby battered and fried the walleye, and I made fried potatoes and this coleslaw.
It’s so close to the KFC recipe, I was super excited!

- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup buttermilk **
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- ** Don't want to buy buttermilk? make your own. Use 1 scant cup of milk (2% or whole works well) and 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar. Mix and let sit for 10 minutes, the milk will thicken and begin to get small curds at the bottom -- adjust for this recipe 1/4 cup milk 1/4 Tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar)
